KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Participation in volunteering and charity-based activities can help nurture a culture of integrity among the people.

However, for this to happen, they must volunteer their services on their own volition and not under compulsion, said Malaysian Institute of Integrity (INTEGRITY) Chief Executive Officer Datuk Dr Anis Yusal Yusoff.

"A volunteer's (level of) integrity can be assessed by finding out if they are in it because of their genuine desire to help the needy or if they are being forced to do so, " he said, recently at a breakfast talk organised by INTEGRITY at its office, here.

Titled, "Sukarelawan: Suka, Rela atau Sebaliknya: Perspektif Integriti"

(Volunteering: Willingly or Otherwise " From the Perspective of Integrity), the talk attracted about 100 participants from various government agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Anis Yusal was among the panellists who spoke at the event, the other panel members being Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS) Chairman Datuk Zuraidah Atan and Yayasan Salam Malaysia Chairman Datuk Ahmad A. Talib.....
